Book Launch & SPICE Hub Launch with Sci-Fi Theremin Jukebox Performance

Spice Hub: Science Popularisation in Culture & Entertainment

Join the CPAS Double Launch Lunch Event on Zoom for Circus, Science & Technology: Dramatising Innovation (Palgrave Macmillan, 2020), an edited collection exploring circus as a site in and through which science and technology are represented in popular culture, and for the SPICE Hub – the new Science Popularisation in Culture and Entertainment Hub of the Australian National Centre for the Public Awareness of Science. 

Popular culture has always been intertwined with the cutting edge of science and technology. It is a versatile frame for interpreting our relationship with technological and scientific advancement. This event brings together the forces interested in popular culture at CPAS and introduces their research interests and vision.

Speakers will include authors of the Circus, Science & Technology book, the editor and Professor Will Christie (Humanities Research Centre), as well as Dr Lindy Orthia and Dr Brad Tucker (CPAS).
